Make dollhouse 'glass' dishes from rigid plastic packaging used for pills, watch batteries or other small cylindrical items. Rigid plastic can be shaped with heat, as was done for the plastic pitcher made from the end of a makeup pencil. The pimento stuffed olives are made from polymer clay.

See the step by step instructions on the following pages for how to flute the plastic and make the olives.
